Come celebrate with Jhado Rinpoche!

Wednesday, February 21st, 6:30 pm- 8:30 pm

Lion’s Roar is celebrating the return of our beloved Heart Lineage Teacher Kyabje Jhado Rinpoche to his temple, Do Nga Dargey!
Rinpoche will be teaching on Milarepa’s poem of blending meditation and action – when meditation and action are joined, we can awaken in this very lifetime. Milarepa’s perseverance, practice and devotion has inspired generations of Dharma students.Like Jetsun Milarepa, Jhado Rinpoche is known for being both a rare visionary and completely down-to-earth. He’s known worldwide for his devotion to and mastery of the Kalachakra cycle of teachings, which are dedicated to the creation of an enlightened society.Do Nga Dargey has made an incredible transformation – the temple is alive with color and art, and the Tara garden is blooming, vibrant and growing. This is our offering to Jhado Rinpoche and to our Sacramento community – please join us!The talk begins at 6:30pm sharp. It will be translated into English, and everybody is welcome. Afterward, there will be a chance to personally greet Rinpoche and make him an offering; Jhado Rinpoche travels the world giving teachings, and his travels are dependent on the support of Dharma students – please give generously so that he may continue to bless us with his wisdom and compassion!
